Great villa in a super location - but some tips for non-spanish visitors

One of the cleanest villas we've ever stayed in, credit to your handover team. Location was excellent, quiet, in a village with shops, yet very near figueres and the beaches. Pool was perfect and well maintained, salt filter, not chlorine, so pleasant. But, if you are not fluent in spanish please note the local agent doesn't speak any other languages. Our group of 4 can speak french, english, dutch and some spanish (one of the reasons to visit was to improve spanish) but agent was only catalan or spanish so if you are visiting from abroad be aware as there's no information pack in the villa (there are some old tourist brochures/leaflets, but nothing on best beaches, restaurants, market day etc). Kitchen not as well equipped as hoped - very limited cutlery (enough for one knife/fork each, so you need to run dishwasher every meal. Also no wine glasses (despite it being a great wine producing area) and agent just said use the tumbler glasses. No baking trays, only one shelf rack in oven, no oven gloves, chopping knives all blunt. Lastly, it was 37c so having just ceiling fan in bedrooms and one pedestal fan downstairs was a shame. Have given 5 stars because we had a fabulous 2 weeks here and it would be petty to dock a star for these minor points, but thought future renters might like to be aware of and plan for. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
